How long to sit on security?

Time and again I talk with people that have purchased security products but never implemented them. It seems like a lot of people have this idea that just purchasing security is half the battle. It is almost worse to do this than to not buy at all because then they get a false sense of security. It is like all of these people that are buying Macs but never update them or configure their firewall. There may be less attacks against Macs than there are for Windows but it just takes one successful attack to ruin your day and your credit. Security isn’t really an option in today’s hyper-connected world. The only way to be secure is to be aware of what is out there and be working to minimize your risk.
